    That's quite the grouping!

    Thanks for taking the time to share this with us. The subject of the battle of Berlin personally fascinates me, and this brave man would have been there to experience it in person.

    Best Regards- Jarret

    Finally, modern comparison on the map. First map shows the area near Klessin (right bottom on the 88 Guards RD battle map), second map shows a bit bigger the area (with Malnov on the left bottom of the battle map), and finally zoomed out quite a lot, showing the whole area, just east of the Seelöw Heights.

    The red dot is Klessin on map 2 and 3, this for orientation.
